Abstract

The Exponential Transmuted Exponential distribution (ETE) appeared in and in this paper we present a new generalization of the ETE distribution based on an application of the Ampadu-G family of distributions that appeared in [1,2]. We also show the new distribution is a good fit to some real-life data, indicating practical significance. As a further development, we propose a new class of distributions based on the structure of the weight function introduced in [3].

Keywords

AT - X(W) family of distributions; Exponential Distribution; Transmuted Distribution

PRELIMINARIES

At first we recall the following definitions

Definition 1.1.

Let λ > 0, ξ > 0 be a parameter vector all of whose entries are positive, and x ? R [2]. A random variable X will be said to follow the Ampadu-G family of distributions if the CDF is given by



And the PDF is given by



Where the baseline distribution has CDF G(x; ξ) and PDF g(x; ξ)

Definition 1.2.

Assume the random variable T with support [0,∞) has CDF G(t; ξ) and PDF g(t; ξ) [2]. We say a random variable S is AT - X(W) distributed of type II if the CDF can be expressed as either one of the following integrals



or


Where λ, ξ > 0, and the random variable X with parameter vector ω has CDF F(x; ω) and PDF f(x; ω)

APPLICATION

As an application we consider the data on patients with breast cancer [1]. We assume the random variable T is exponentially distributed. So that the CDF of T is given by

G(t; d) = 1 - e-dt
For t, d > 0 and the PDF is given by

g(t; d) = de-dt

For t, d > 0. Now we recall the following, for some baseline distribution K(x), the transmuted family of distributions has CDF given by

(1 + b)K(x) - bK2(x)

Where b ? [-1, 1]. Now we assume X is transmuted exponentially distributed, so that if

K(x):= 1 - e-ax
For x, a > 0, then the CDF of X is given by

F(x; a, b) = (b + 1) (1 - e-ax) - b (1 - e-ax)2
And the PDF is given by

f(x; a, b) = a(b + 1) e-ax - 2abe-ax (1 - e-ax)

Now from the first integral in 3.2 Definition, we have the following

Theorem 2.1.

The CDF of the A{Exponential}-{Transmuted Exponential} distribution is given by



Where x, a, c, d > 0 and b ? [-1, 1]

Remark 2.2.

If a random variable Q has CDF given by the above theorem, write 

Q ~ AETE(a, b, c, d)

The PDF of the AETE distribution can be obtained by differentiating the CDF
The AETE distribution is seen to be a good fit to real life data as shown in the figure 1.

FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS

Inspired by the structure of the weight function introduced in, we ask the reader to investigate some properties and applications of a so-called A{New T} - X(W) family of distributions of type II [3]. We leave the reader with the following.

Definition 3.1.

Assume the random variable T with support [0,∞) has CDF G(t; ξ) and PDF g(t; ξ). We say a random variable SNew is A{New T} - X(W) distributed of type II if the CDF can be expressed as the following integral.



Where λ, ξ > 0, and the random variable X with parameter vector ω has CDF F(x; ω) and PDF f(x; ω)

CONCLUDING REMARKS

Our hope is that the new class of distributions presented in this paper will find application in cancer modeling and forecasting
